Mrs. Gardner's Homeroom

Room 103 Week of Oct 17th

What we are learning

Wow I can't believe we are nearing the end of the first quarter already! This year is flying by.

Math

This week in math students will be taking an assessment on prime, composite, factors, and multiples. We will then be working on a remediation/enrichment plan for 1st quarter. Students will be working on the skills they still need extra practice on and completing enrichment activities for those that they understand.

Reading

This week we will be reading a variety of greek myths. Students will be learning to determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including those that allude to significant characters found in mythology (e.g., Herculean)


The will also be Comparing and Contrasting the themes of myths.

Social Studies

Students will begin learning about Native American tribes in North Carolina. They will be reading about tribes of the Coastal Regions of NC. We will wrap up our unit on Native Americans with a collaborative project.

Showdown

Students participated in a cooperative learning activity called showdown in which they worked to review problems that involved finding factors.
